Towards a comprehensive approach to Mental Health: Policy Dialogue with Commissioner Stella Kyriakides

The many uncertainties we face today are a perfect recipe for mental health challenges.

Fifteen young people met with Commissioner Kyriakides on 22 February for a youth policy dialogue on a comprehensive approach to mental health, as part of the European Year of Youth. Whilst speaking about their own experiences, which were significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the group called for EU support to raise awareness of mental health challenges and to break down stigma. They underlined that accessible, appropriate and affordable mental health support should also be available to all who need it. The outcomes of this discussion will feed into the consultation for the Commission’s Communication on a comprehensive approach to mental health.
